efforts of Taliaferro, Gwinner, Bam- 
berger and Byrd, the infant of the 
quartet, for their contributions in the 
tarly development of the institution. 
"It has meant more than many of us 
realize," said Congressman Cole. 

Senator Tydings confined his brief 
remarks to a plea for closer coopera- 
tion among the alumni in the asso- 
ciation next year and urged that an 
n larger turnout of alumni be ef- 
fected at the meeting next year. One 
thousand was the goal set for atten- 
dance at the 1932 gathering.

and its advantages. 

Under the provisions, alumni are to 
be urged to subscribe to the fund at 
periodic intervals. The fund was to 
be made available for any worthy uni- 
versity project and not to be regarded 
as an auxiliary to the State appropria- 
tions. Upon establishing the fund by 
unanimous vote, C. W. Cole, '21, im- 
mediately stated that the class of '21 
would contribute $100.00.

talks at the meeting were: Senator 
Frank ('. Norwood. '74, J. B. Gray, '75,

Maryland Teams 
Enjov Banner Year 


Score Some Brilliant Victories And 

Capture Sixty-fire Pet Cent 

hi .Ml Contests 

Maryland's athletic teams have a lot 
to be proud of and nothing u> be sorry 
in the varied program that was 
1 out during the 1930-31 term. 

nning with the football set 
and winding up with a baseball game, 
the OKI Line representatives went 


with attractive rivals and when 
the results were summed up it was 

found that they had won more than 
t?nt of their battles. This ap- 
plies to the freshman as well as to 
the Varsity teams. 

\ high spot of the >oar was the 
winning of the Southern Confer- 
ence basket-ball champion-hip in 
which the Old liners marched 

through a field of teams that rep- 
resented the best in Dixieland. 
Along with the corralling of the 
coveted title, Bosej Berger and 
Kd. Uonkin were picked on the all- 
Southern quint and later the 
former was named for all-Anur- 
ican honor-. 

Maryland had preceded the basket- 
ball season with a football campaign 

was about as interesting as . 
the Old Liners ever have played, al- 
though the team won only 7 of its 12 
game*. The others, though, were fine 
st top-notch adversaries, 
the "ntest that Navy won at 

Annapolis before more than '23,000 be- 
ing a sample of the brand.

achievement in view of the gen-

Agricultural College, now the Collegi 

Park Schools of the University of 
Maryland, in 1892, and who has tlu 
honor of being one of the early day 
Old Line athletes, was on hand for the 

Grand Reunion on June 6. 

Fuller, who pursued a scientific 
course in agriculture, was a halfback 
in the first football game the Old 

Liners ever played away from Colli 

Park. This was with Episcopal High 
School at Alexandria, Va., in the fall 
of 1 S'.rJ. During the same season 
Georgetown was deflated 6 to 0. 

In the spring of 1893 Puller was an 

Outfielder "li the first baseball team 
at College Park which was organized 
by the M. A. C. Athletic Association. 
Prof. Strickler was the first director 
of the association, played on the nine 
and coached both baseball and football 
for three consecutive years. The 
colors at that time were maroon and 

At that time the college enrollment 
totalled about 150 students under the 
guidance of Captain It. W. Sylvester. 

In the early days, the institution 
was strictly a military college and the 
company drilling competition was the 
event of the year. In 1895, Fuller had 
the honor of being first sergeant in 
Company C, which won the much 
prized silk flag. W. B. Crapster,

Poultry Disease Discovery 

Made By Roy Dearstyne, '17 

S. Dearstyne, '17. a meml 
tin- faculty in the poultry department 

at North Carolina State College, is 
the discoverer of short interval blood- 
tests that will reduce poultry losses 
from Pullorum disease, commonly 
known as Bacillary White Diarrhea. 

Since 1913 the subject has been a 
source of controversy as to its effec- 
tiveness in determining carrier birds 
of the dis' 

Dr. It. Y. Winters said this about 

Dearstyne's discovery, "The applica- 
tion of Mr. Dearstyne's results in 
North Carolina poultry industry will 
save poultrymen each year more than 
the total cost of all poultry research 
conducted here during the past 20 

j ears." 

"Roj ." w ho hails from Port Chi 
New York, graduated with the class 
17 in agriculture. He was a very 
tudenl i ollege affairs and 

now is an enthusiastic alumnus. Since 
graduation he has been engaged in 
public health service in Baltimore 
City and in North Carolina, also in 
poultry disease work of North 
Carolina. His services have been, 
in all cases, highly commendable.

Fifty Alumni Attend 
Many former students of the Uni-

Bill." He served as a scout in cam- 
paigns against both the Ute and Sioux 

In the summer of 1876, Thomas 
rode westward with the army of Gen- 
eral Terry in Sheridan's campaign 
against Sitting Bull. He was attached 
to the Seventh Cavalry, commanded 
by Custer. On June 24, a force of 
Indians was located on the west bank 
of the Little Big Horn River and 
Custer divided his men in the hope of 
trapping them. 

Thomas, with three companies com- 
manded by Major Reno, attacked the 
Indians, but the troopers were re- 
pulsed and driven across the river to 
a shelter of a protecting bluff. Mean- 
while, Custer and his men had been 
surrounded and massacred. Two days 
later, with the rest of Reno's men, 
he helped bury Custer's dead. Thomas 
used to recall how-, as an Indian 
fighter in war times and a buffalo 
hunter in times of peace, he became 
an expert rifleman. After he returned 
East to make his home in Baltimore, 
he retained a lively interest in hunt- 
ing, and at the time of his death was 
treasurer of the Ridgewood Rod and 
Gun Club.

No Change Likely 

In Athletic Staff 


Fenwiek, Uncertain For Time. Nwn 

Appears >ure To Remain A- 

Crid Assistant 

It is unlikely that any change will 
be made in the athletic staff at Mary- 
the 1931-32 term. 
For a time it appeared that Charlie 
Fenwiek. who has been line coach and 
Srst aide to Curley Byrd for the ; 
three seasons, would not be back on 
the job. but it now looks as if he 

lid be able to so arrange hush 
matters as to return in the fall. 

Fenwiek is associated with his fa- 
ther in the patent law business in 
Washington and the demands upon 
his time are such that it has been dif- 
ficult for him to absent himself from 
his office. However. Fenwiek is such 
a lover of football that he really takes 
the giid season for his vacation anil he 
is reluctant to give up his association 
with it. 

ne time Fenwiek had about de- 
cided that he would have to quit coach- 
ing, but he now thinks that he can 
..rrange his business affairs as to 
remain with the Old Liners. 

If Fenwiek returns, the Maryland 
staff will remain intact, the other- 
being as follows: 

H. Burton Shipley, head coach of 
basket-ball and baseball and assis- 
tant in football. 

John E. Faber, head coach of la- 
crosse and freshman football and 

Geary Eppley. head coach of track 
and cross country, both varsity and 

Earl Zulick, assistant in football. 
Ivan Marty, assistant in lacrosse as 
chief defense coach.

mates as "Pop," graduated with a 
B. S. degree in animal husbandry 
from the Maryland Agriculture Col- 
lege with the class of 1913, For four 
'Pop" was a main stay of the 
nail team, playing the pivot posi- 
tion. He played center on the first 
football team "Curley" Byrd coached 
at Maryland. However, not only in 
athletics was he active, but, as his 
classmates put it "Pop" held every of- 
fice from deckhand to cadet major and 
handled each with the same dexterity, 
that type of individual 
whose friendship was held in the high-

Mackert To Direct 
Physical Education 

Maryland Graduate Who Got Ph. D. 

\i Columbia l . Will Take 

Charge In Fall 

Charles Leroj Mackert, of the 
class of 1921, more familiarly known 

as "Mack," will become professor 
of physical education al Maryland 
when the fall term opens on Septem- 
ber 16. 
Mackert, who received his A. B. and 

M. S. at Maryland, and who was 
awarded his Ph. i> in physical 
tion at Columbia University in 1930, 
headed the department of physical ed 
ucation at Lebanon Valley Colli 
at Annville, Pa., during the 1930-31 

lie is the first Maryland graduate 
to ever receive a doctor's degree 
physical education. 

With the advent of Mackert as a 
regular member of the faculty of the 
College of Education, .Maryland will 
formulate plans for a program 
physical recreation for all. This plan 
has been in mind for some time and 
much already has been done toward 
putting it in force. 

Mackert at present is in charge > 1 
the physical education department of 
the Summer School at Maryland. 

While a student at Maryland, Mack- 
ert was one of the Old Liners' out- 
standing football players, as a full- 
back and tackle, and was considered 
good enough to lie on the all-time 
team as an occupant of either position. 
While working for his master's de- 
al Maryland, he coached the 
Old Line freshman teams and aided 
in tutoring the linemen of the Varsity

A COMPLETE accounting for all 
isa meetings held on the day 
of the Grand Reunion cannot as yet 
be given. However, several class sec- 
residents have made 
rts that show the development of 
interest and enthusiasm in the Alumni 
•eiation and its purp> •- 
.Major O. II. Saunders, '10, duly 
elected secretary of his class, gave 
a report in a very interesting and 
unique manner. It was in the nature 
of a letter to his classmates, reviewing 
the day and its happenings in a hu- 
morous and most entertaining manner. 
Congressman W. P. Cole was elected 
oresident of the class, and two im- 
portant procedures were inaugurated. 
The first one was for the purpose of 
continuing the good fellowship that 
prevails. It was decided that each 
member of the class should take his 
turn in writing a monthly letter to the 
entire class. The other was that the 
class would endeavor to raise §250 
each year for the next four years so 
that on their twenty-fifth anniversary 
in 1935. $1,000 would be available for 
'inp tn tbp Alumn' Fund. 
Also the compiling and printing of a 
"then and now" book for the twenty- 
fifth anniversary was proposed and 

The classes of 1923 and 1924 are 
also undertaking an important move- 
ment under the leadership of "Bunt" 
Watkins and "Charley" White, of '23, 
and Sarah Morris, Aubrey St. Clair 
Wardwell. Ralph Chase, and Russell 
Rothgeb, of '24. It was proposed and 
adopted that an endeavor would be 
made to secure and print in the form 
of a condensed year-book the bibli- 
ography and activities of the individual 
class members while they were in col- 
lege. This movement was brought 
about bv the fact that a year-book 
was not published in 102-J and I

class or student-activity records for 
these two cla embled.

July 16, 1931, while being taken from 
his home in Herndon, Va., to that of 
his son-in-law in Chevy Chase, Md. 
Dr. Russell, 92 years old, and one of 
the best known old-time doctors in

a Civil War veteran, having served in 
the cavalry division of the Confeder-

burg, Md., and later at Herndon, Va. —

University Library Offers 

Service To Former Students 

Especially to the former stu- 
dents of the University who do 
not have the resources of a li- 
brary nearby, the University Li- 
brary is glad to lend non-fiction 
books when they are not in ac- 
tive use on the campus. 

One or two books can be sent 
for a period of two weeks, the 
borrower to pay for their return 
arcel post insured. On re- 
quest an extension of the time 
can be granted, if the books can 
still be spared. Fiction may not 
well be included for lending, be- 
cause of the demands made by 
students on the relatively small 
collection. But there are many 
books in biography, travel, histo- 
iciology, science, the useful 
poetry, etc., from which to 
choose, and our Reference Libra- 
rian will be glad to select a book 
for you, or to make short lists of 
our best books on various subjects 
for those who wish them. For 
technical subjects, I think mem- 
f the faculty would cooper- 
ate in listing good hooks for those 
who would like to continue their 
university education in this way. 

We shall be most happy to be 
our alumni, 
iially yours,

his life since leaving Maryland. After 
graduation he went west, as did V. K. 
"Socks" White, '12, as a representative 
of Studebaker Motor Company. While 

there Morse met and married Miss 
Fritz White, of Cheyenne, Wyoming. 
When wai was declared, he immedi- 
ately enlisted and was commissioned 
a 2nd lieut. in the 15th U. S. Cavalry 
and sent to France where he spent l»i 
months. Following his return from 
Prance, he located in Cheyenne for 
one year and his experiences are worth 
hearing. In 1920 he became connected 

with the Pacific (otton .Mills of Chi- 
cago, and has been employed by that

Following his graduation from the

Has Begun Grind 

Problems Paced Despite Return Of 

Ten 1930 Regulars — Game With 

Navy Is High Spot 

MARYLAND'S football players 
have begun the grind for the 
1931 campaign that promises plenty 
of keen competition and thrills before 
the ten-game schedule is completed. 

And while Curley Byrd and his as- 
sociates have ten of last year's regu- 
lars as the nucleus of the eleven, there 
are some problems that will have to be 
solved if the season is to be highly 

One tackle berth is left open from 
the 1930 eleven and filling that and 
finding line reserves are the tasks that 
confront the Old Liners. A team i< 
said to be as strong as its 
and Maryland will be hard put to it to 
go through its stiff list of games unless 
some understudies for the forward 
wall are developed. And the material 
from which they must come is none 
too experienced. 

With ten backs in all left from last 
year, four of them regulars, the ball- 
toting situation is much brighter.

Class of '29 Donates 

Picture To New Library 

The class of '29 has the distinc- 
tion of being the first class to make a 
contribution to the New Library. A 
balance which was left in the class 
treasury at the time of graduation was 
given to Miss Barnes, librarian, to 
purchase a suitable picture for the 
new library. The picture secured was 
that of Sir Galahad, a famous knight 
of the Round Table, as he was set- 
ting forth on his quest of the Holy 
liL On Alumni Day the class 
viewed the picture immediately after 
lunch and then convened to their 
annual class meeting when a \ 
-tractive program was inaugurat- 
The outstanding feature of the 
meeting was proposing and adopting a 
plan to establish a class fund for the 
purpose of keeping in closer contact 
the members of the el; 

Dinty (Coons, president, will g 
fully appreciate any comments, sug- 
tions, and contribution- for the

Blander G. W. Cairnes, '03, of

I feeling, interest and enthusiasm 
in his Alma .Mater by waiting the 
alumni office from Marseilles, France. 
"We have visited Gibraltar, Egypt, 
Constantinople, Black Sea (where all 

hands tilled their fountain pens) and 
arrived in .Marseilles today where I 
found your letter and the June ALUM-

to those who have not been in these 
parts that what Mark Twain said of 
the Atlantic is equally true of the

that I was unable to attend the

the first time since our graduation, as 
well as many more of mv old friends.

Traditions, Main Topic 

At Alumni Hoard Meeting 
The regular fall meeting of the 

Alumni Hoard was held Oct. 111. at the 
Raleigh Hotel, in Washington, D, C. 
Millard E. Tydings, president of the 
association, presided. The following 
members were present: John P. 
Mudd, 'I president; T. B. Sy- 

mon i crctan -treasurer; M. M. 

Clark, '22; Wellstood White, '05; D. J. 
Howard. '17; Mrs. Elizabeth H 
Day, '20; J. Hanson Mitchell; '98, and 
(;. F. idiiock, 

dent TydingS presented the 
first topic for discussion, which was 
a proposal for the alumni to estab- 
lish something at College Park which 
will ultimately have a strong tradi- 
tion. This, it is believed, will do much 
toward cultivating more enthusiasm 
among the students and alumni. Full 
ills about the proposal will be pre- 
I ed in a subsequent issue. 

According to the motion made and 
passed at the annual alumni meet- 
ing last June, the Alumni Day in 1932 
will be Saturday. June 5, The dis- 
cussion on the Alumni Fund resulted 
in a proposal, that it be made a class 
proposition and each class be encour- 
aged to raise, by voluntary contribu- 
tions, a class fund to be given to the 
Alumni Fund as a class contribution. 

Group organizations were discussed 
and the board desires each organized 
group to have at least one meeting 
a year and groups be organized where 
none exist at the present. 

The recommendation bureau of the 
association, more women representa- 
tion on the Alumni Board, the ALUMNI 
News, the budget for 1931-32, and 
the appeal for more paid up member- 
ships, were other subjects to receive 
earnest discussion. 

The board voted to have the next 
meeting in January at College Park. 





(Continued from Page 1) 

Something like 20,000 persons, in- 
cluding many Maryland alumni, saw 
one of the best football games ever 
staged on any field and at the same 
time one of the most colorful of grid- 
iron spectacles. It was a game and 
a show that would have done credit 
to a crowd of five times the propor- 
tions that witnessed it. 

Every writer who penned a piece 
about the game praised it from every 
standpoint. Both teams played a high 
brand of football, the type that puts 
a premium on the physical as well 
lie mental, and it was just one tar- 
get that hit Navy amidships that gave 
the Old Liners the victory. 

Touchdown 1^. Thriller 
Maryland's touchdown came like a 
bolt of lightning out of a clear sky. 
Courtney llavden. Maryland guard, 
grabbed a Navy fumble near midtield 
about midway of the third period to 
give the Old Liners a "break." Woods 
got a couple yards to put the ball ex- 
actly in the center of the gridiron. 
Ami linn came the play that had so 
many wrinkles that Navy and most of 

the spectators were not able to fol- 
low the ball. 

Skip Faber shot the ball back from 
center to Ray Poppelman, then Paul 
Kiernan took possession of it, only 
to hand it to Shorty Chalmers. It was 
too hot for Chalmers to hold so he 
sent it 30 yards down the field to Al 
Pease who traveled 20 more to tote 
it across the goal. 

Pull Tricky Stuff 

To be more explicit and to state 
it in football terms, it was a forward 
pass after a triple pass and a double 
yvxcy^v. Just as clear as mud, but 
the ex-football players, at least, will 
understand what it is all about. And 
all will understand that six points 
beat nothing. 

It was .Maryland's first triumph 
over the Midshipmen in football and, 
although there have been a number 
of games between the two over a num- 
ber of years, the grid relations really 
only began with the 6 to win Navy 
scored at Annapolis last fall. In the 
games prior to that time Navy was 
so vastly superior in strength and 
numbers to Maryland that they were 
not comparable. 

Statistics show that Maryland 
tamed its triumph, as the Old Liners 
had a shade on the M'ddies in every 
angle, the slim margin by which Navy- 
won in 1930 being about just reversed. 

Brings Much Prestige 

It was a victory that gave Mary- 
land a lot of prestige and one that 
was begrudged in no way by those 
back of Navy athletics, as their 
sportsmanlike attitude was so pro- 
nounced as to make the Old Liners 
almost ashamed that they had won 
the game. 

Maryland started the game as fol- 

Al Pease, left end; Ernie Carliss, 
left tackle; Courtney Hayden, left 
guard; John Mitchell, center; Jess 
Krajcovic. right guard; Ted Keenan, 
right tackle; Jack Norris, right end; 
Al Woods, quarterback; Shorty Chal- 
mers, left halfback; Bozey Berger, 
right halfback; Ray Poppelman, full- 

Substitutions were: Skip Faber for 

Mitchell. May for Poppelman, Settino 

fur May, Kiernan for Berger.

Shipley, Maryland Aggie's star

Maryland by a last-quarter rally 
came from behind to defeat Virginia 
by the lone point after touchdown. 
The game had many thrills. Thomas. 
of Virginia, provided the first by 
trotting GO yards on the kick off to 
Maryland's 20-yard line. Maryland 
took the ball on downs. But during 
the second period, Virginia recovered 
a fumble deep in Maryland territory 
and taking advantage of the situation 
uncorked a forward pass which netted 
a touchdown. The half ending, Vir-

The fourth quarter rally provided 
the thrill for the football fans and 
brought victory to Maryland. With 
minutes left to play, Maryland 
:ed a march from midfield by a

after touchdown being the winning 
point. By the victory. Maryland

The Home-coming this year is ex- 
pected to be the largest ever held at 
College Park. Elaborate preparations 
are going forward to arrange the best 
program possible. The football game 
is the feature of the day, to be fol- 
lowed by the highly enjoyable supper 
dance which was such a huge success 
last year. Some of the comments 
about the supper dance given by many 
of the alumni last year, are as fol- 
lows: "The best day I ever spent at 
College Park"; "A most fitting climax 
for a Home-coming Day"; "An ideal 
opportunity to spend an enjoyable 
evening visiting with old friends." 

The program for the day begins 
with the annual "M" Club luncheon 
followed by a business meeting. The 
varsity football game starts at 2:30 
in the Byrd stadium and the supper 
dance begins one hour after the close 
of the game. Following the supper, 
the annual Home-coming Hop will 
begin at 9 P. M.

Old Liners, and until 1928 the Wash- 
ington and Lee team had been a real 
jinx to Maryland, winning the first 
four games. 

Finally Break Ice 

However, the Old Liners broke the 
ice in 1928 when "Snitz" Snyder 
was the battering ram in getting the 
lone touch-down of the game, and last 
fall Maryland, with everything it 
did going right and everything that 
Washington and Lee tried going 
wrong, won by the one-sided score 
of 41 to 7. All of the previous games 
had been hard fought, close, and ex- 
tremely interesting. 

Washington and Lee with Jimmy 
Dellart, who was on hand when the 
Generals were making their mark on 
the gridiron, back as coach have a 
much better team than that which 
visited College Park last fall and the 
game this year should return to the 
type of battles that prevailed prior 
to 1930. 

The game was originally scheduled 
for November 14, but was placed a 
week later to allow Washington and 
Lee to accept an offer to play Prince- 
ton on the earlier date. As a con- 
sequence the Old Liners will be idle 
on November 14 instead of the 21st as 
was intended. This will result in 
Maryland playing Washington and 
Lee, Johns Hopkins, and Western 
.Maryland within a scope of two weeks,

five days after the clash with the Gen- 

Should Be Heal Foe 

Washington and Lee, with Dellart 
having had time to develop the team 
along his own lines for most of the 
season, should be just about at their 
best when they invade College Park 
and the contest should offer a real 
attraction for the returning alumni.

"M" Club Will Flay Host 

To Athletes Of Fast Years 

Home-coming Day will find the "M" 
Club host to the All-Time Maryland 
athletes of yesteryear. Those athletes 
to be honored were chosen by a popu- 
lar vote by the Alumni Association. 
The "M" Club sponsored the move- 
ment which was suggested by James 
Burns, '11. All sports supported by 
the University will be represented by 
a team or by individual records. 

These men will be guests of the 
Athletic Board at the Home-coming 
football game between Maryland and 
Washington and Lee. The "M" Club 
will then fete them at the Home-com- 
ing supper dance. 

Two Football Teams 

In the case of football there will be 
two teams. This was due to the fact 
that about 190G there was such a 
drastic change in the football rules, 
bringing into play the forward pass. 
Therefore, one team was chosen prior 
to 1906, and another from 1906 to 
1930. Only one team has been se- 
lected from each of the other sports. 

President Pearson To Speak 

The "M" Club announces there are 
some 80 or more athletes who will 
receive specially engraved certificates 
at the Home-coming supper dance, 
honoring them as All-Time Maryland 

President Raymond A. Pearson will 
make a short address of welcome and 
congratulation, after which J. B. Gray, 
Jr., '14, president of the "M" Club, 
will present the certificates. 


There may be a depression in 

business and many other things, 
but there should never bo any de- 
crease in the good fellowship of 
Maryland graduates. I hope 
everyone will make a special ef- 
fort to be present at the Home- 
coming, November 21, and I be- 
lieve we will have a day well 
worth while.

Five Wins, One Tie 
Mark First Six Tilts 

When the Old Line Varsity Grid- 
tiers went into the Vanderbilt game 
on November 7 at Nashville they had 
a record of five wins and a tie in six 

The victories were over Washington 
College, 13 to 0; Virginia, 7 i 
Navy, 6 to 0; V. M. 1.. 11 to 20, and 
Virginia Poly, 20 to 0. The tie was 
a 6 to <i affair with Kentucky that 
followed the Navy Clash,

Dedication Of Co-ed 

Building December l 

</ from Page 1 ) 

The architect for this building is Ma- 
jor Howard Cutler. On the inside 
we find a large floor, <'>o x LOO, of suf- 
ficient size for a maximum basket- 
ball court. <>n the north side are 
dressing rooms containing i"> Bhowers, 
lockers, and lavatories. On the 
south side are offices for the directoi 
of physical education and the woman 
physician, seminar rooms for the ma- 
in physical education, and 
a classroom. This building also con- 
tains a kitchenette which will meet 
a long-felt need lor parlies on the 

campus where food can be served. 
Recreation Field 
At the back of this building a rec- 
reation held for girls is in the proc- 
of construction. This will con- 
a hockey field, baseball diamond, 
volley-ball court, outdoor basket-ball 
court, and tennis courts. It is a far 
cry from the early clays of 1 l . • 2 ^ when 
the first step in girls' athletics was 
taken in the organization of the girls' 
rifle team, whose sole equipment con- 
sisted of one gun and one rifle coat, 
to the present facilities for girls at 
the University. 

Dormitory Ready 

The first dormitory for women, 
which will be ready for occupancy by 
Home-coming Day, was designed by 
Smith and May who have been the 
architects for several of the build- 
ings on the campus. The dormitory- 
is of colonial design of the Georgian 
period and will house 120 girls. It 
contains ample recreation space, in- 
cluding a large reception room, two 
small parlors, and a large social hall. 
Bach floor has a kitchenette, running 
hot and cold water in each bedroom, 
tubs, showers, etc. The furniture will 
be of the early American period to 
correspond with the architecture of 
the building. 

Gov. Ritchie To Be Present

Professor I'ouleur, '()."), Makes 
Gift To University Chemists 

Professor A. L. I'ouleur, 'or>, now 
a member of the faculty at Wheaton 
College, .Mass., presented the chemical 
artment of this University with a 
complete sel of Atomic Structure 
Models, with which he has been doing 
a great deal of good work. 

When the American Chemical So- 
cietj met in Buffalo during the earlier 
part of September, Profe Bor I'ou-

Molecular Structure Models as a vis- 
ual aid in the teaching of chemistry.

man as leader, piled up the points 
against V. M. I. and Virginia Poly. 
The line has played exceptionally fine 
football in all the games. 

Maryland's football success this 
year is not due to weight but clever- 
ness and heady play. The team, at 
its heaviest, does not average quite 
178 pounds to the man and any sub- 
stitution cuts down poundage. The 
squad as a whole averages under 170 
pounds. The Old Liners have been 
out-weighed in every game, except 
against Washington College and V. 
M. I., and poundage was about equal 
in the contest with the latter. 

The Old Line freshman team, that 
apparently contains a number of play- 
ers of worth, scored over the Virginia 
yearlings, 19 to 6, and the V. M. I. 
cubs, 7 to 0, in its first two games. 

present for the dedication and many 
distinguished Marylanders and guests 
from other states. It is hoped that 
all women alumnae will make an effort 
to be present for the ceremonies 
which will mark a real event in the 
lives of the women students of Mary-

Buffalo, X. Y. The couple are now 
living at 1306 Floral St., N. W., Wash- 
ington, D. C. Wilson said in a letter 
to the association that since his return 
to this locality, Ralph Powers, "Bill"

Former Oustanding Athletes 
Honored On Home-coming Day 

-COMING DAY, with the All-Star 
Athletes of yesteryear as honored 
guests, enjoyed the return of approx- 
imately 500 or more alumni, who 
joined a crowd of 7,000 people to 
watch the Terrapins and Generals 
tie their annual football tilt; the 
Terrapins emerging the victor by the 
count of 13 to 7. 

J. B. Gray, Jr., '14, president of the 
"M" Club, and Senator M. E. Tydinga, 
'10, president of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation, led the return of alumni. 
R. H. Ruffner, '08, and R. C. Williams,

longest distances. The former came 
from Raleigh, X. C, and the latter 
from Detroit, Michigan. 

The old grads began coming in 
about 10 A. M., and registering at 
the headquarters in the gymnasium. 
At noon, some 70 former letter men 
gathered at the Home Beonon 
Building for their annual luncheon 
and business meeting. The meeting 
adjourned at 2 P. M., and all proceeded

AI Pease and Jack Norris, end-;

won him national fame, and the fleet

Poppelman, Al Woods, one of the big- 
gest cog's in the machine, and Ted Kee- 
iiiin, tackle, will be the only starters 
in the final tilt who will be back. 

Maryland, in making its great rec- 
ord, also defeated Navy, its old rival, 
Johns Hopkins, all the "Big Four" of 
the Old Donr'nion — Virginia, V. M. I., 
Virginia Poly, and Washington and 
Lee, tied Kentucky and lost only to

Poppelman, in running wild in most 
every game, totalled more than 1,350 
yards for the season, thus breaking 
the record of "Snitz" Snyder, made in 
1928, by about 100 yards. 

All told, Maryland played 16 foot- 
ball games during the fall, winning 
12, tying two, and losing two. The 
"B" squad won its only game while 
the Freshmen captured three, tied 
one, and lost one. 

Now that football is over basket- 
ball will hold the center of the stage 
with Burton Shipley and his Southern 
Conference champions ready to make 
a bid for more high honors. 

Shipley has all of his championship 
team at hand, along with Pat Rooney, 
kept out last year by an injury suf- 

ed in an auto mishap, and five good 
men from last season's freshman

Shipley and his tossers are "break- 
ing" the schedule with a tough assign- 
ment, as the Old Liners will travel to 
Madison to play the University of 
Wisconsin on December 30 with hard- 
ly enough time to prep for such a 
game. Most of the basketers were 
on the football squad, so early prac- 
tice was out of the question. The 
Badgers, on the other hand, have been 
drilling almost since the opening - of 
school under the tutelage of Dr. Wal-

held in front of the memorial, lo- 
cated on the south side of the wo-

accepted for the University by Dr.

the University; and Dr. *S. M. Shoe-

Mrs. Charles E. Ellicott, in dedicat-

Greetings were also brought to the 
University by officers of the various 
women's clubs of Maryland.

tion of the handsome new field house 
for men on January 20 Navy is going 
to send its basket-ball team over for 
the big- doings. Governor Ritchie is 
slated to be present and it sure is 
rig to be a gala occasion. It's 
worth a trip to College Park just to 
see that field house, one of the 
dreams that has come true.

The Alumni Supper Dance began 
at 6 P. M. in the Ritchie Gymnasium 
with about 300 attending. The gym- 
nasium was elaborately decorated in 
black and gold with gold electric bulbs 
adding to the effect. Tables were ar- 
ranged around the edge of the gym- 
nasium in cabaret style with the cen- 
ter open for dancing. The Supper 
Dance, which was held for the first 
time last year, has grown very popu- 
lar, as shown by the increased atten- 
dance. Last year about 150 attended, 
and this year the number was doubled. 

Immediately following the Supper 
Dance, the "M" Club, led by its for- 
mer president, J. B. Gray, Jr., '14, 
presented the All-Star Athletes of 
yesteryear, who were the honored 
guests of the day, with special en- 
graved certificates indicating that they 
have been the outstanding performers 
in athletics at Maryland by a popular 

vote of the Alumni Association. Some 
50 or more athletes were present. 

Prof. Richardson Makes Talk 

In the unavoidable absence of Pres- 
ident Raymond A. Pearson, Professor 
Charles S. Richardson was requested 
to extend greetings to the All-Star 
Athletes. He told the athletes that 
the University was honoring them be- 
cause in the past they had brought 
fame and prestige to the University. 
He said: 

"Gentlemen, when you were star- 
ring on some athletic team you were 
probably at that time unconscious of 
the fact that you were making a 
priceless contribution to the welfare 
and progress of the University of 
Maryland. Your athletic prowess, 
your loyalty, and your good sports- 
manship had both a physical and 
spiritual value that cannot be overes- 
timated among the different factors 
that have helped to make our insti- 
tution great. The University fully 
recognizes this, and gladly does honor 
to you tonight for the splendid con- 
tribution you have made." 

Professor Richardson also said that 
while the committee whose duty it 
was to select the All-Star Athletes 
knew that every one selected was 
worthy of the honor, yet the members 
of the committee found that other 
men equally worthy had been unin- 
tentionally omitted, as the selec- 
tions had been based upon a rather 
inadequate vote of the alumni. He 
further said, however, that the mem- 
bers of the committee had the satis- 
fying consciousness that any student 
who was big enough really to de- 
serve the honor, and yet was unin- 
tentionally omitted from the list, 
would also be big enough to under- 
stand the situation and feel no man- 
ner of resentment toward anyone. 

At 9 P. M. the Annual Home-coming 
Dance began with the students join- 
ing the alumni to add youth and gay- 
ety to the occasion. The curtain 
dropped at midnight on the most suc- 
cessful Home-coming Maryland has 
ever enjoyed.

In the echoes of its passing, it is 
no more than just to award all praise 
for its success to the officers and

To the Members of the Alumni 

Association : 

The progress which the Uni- 
versity of Maryland has made 
during the past 10 years has not 
just happened. It has been due 
to concerted effort. 

The officers of the Alumni As- 
sociation wish to make this year 
a memorable one in the history of 
the University. Of course, the 
in tfive the associa- 
ipport they can. Un- 
fortunately, through inadver- 
tence, many of them have not 
paid their dues, which, though 
small, are needed to make the 
Alumni Association a fighting 
and worth-while adjunct for the 
furtherance of the interests of 
the University. 

president, I am asking at 
this time if every member of the 
association, whose dues are un- 
paid, will send them in at once. 
To do less than this will be to 
hamper the work of the associa- 
tion and curtail the accomplish- 
ments for the year 1931-1932. 

I'l. ;. e SI I tlOW and send your 
check tu Dr. T. B. Symons. Sec- 
Treasurer, College Park, 

With besl wishes for the vear 
1932, I am

New Vioaii Greetings 

The officers of the Alumni Association take this occasion to express 
their sincere appreciation for the {rood will and loyal cooperation that has 
been accorded them during the past year, and at the same time extend 
to members of the association sincere wishes for success and happiness 
in the New Year.

From Seattle, Washington 
From the far coiner of the U. S. A. 

an old alumnus writes his enthusiasm 
about our football team. He ha 
watched the progress of the team i:i 
the Seattle Star of Washington State. 
These are his comments on the We t- 
ern Maryland game and the season: 

"My gosh! what a team Maryland 
has this year, and of course this 
remark goes for that wonderful fellow 
you call the coach. 

"Received the final score of the 
Western Maryland game over the 
radio. What a score! Some said 
Maryland had a tough game to face. 

"Please tell Ray Poppelman I send 
congratulations. Also, we must not 
lose sight of the other 10 fellows on 
the team that made Ray's long runs 
possible by their splendid interference. 
—A. T. Schenck, '06." 

University Library Offers 

Service To Former Students 

Especially to the former students 
of the University who do not have 
the resources of a library nearby, the 
University Library is glad to lend 
non-fiction books when they are not 
in active use on the campus. 

One or two books can be sent for 
a period of two weeks, the borrower 
to pay for their return by parcel post 
insured. On request an extension 
of the time may be granted, if the 
books can still be spared. There are 
many books in biography, travel, 
history, sociology, science, the useful 
arts, poetry, etc., from which to 
choose, and our Reference Librarian 
will he glad to select a book for you, 
or to make short lists of our best 
hooks on various subjects for those 
who wish them. For technical sub- 
jects, members of the faculty would 
cooperate in listing good books for 
those who would like to continue their 
university education in this way. 

Address all requests to Miss Grace 
Haines. Librarian, University of 
Maryland. College Park, Md.

into the game later, the first named 
playing the majority of the contest at 
center. Morris Cohen and Bob Wil- 
son also made the trip. 

Wisconsin, always one of the leading 
teams of the country, was playing its 
fourth game of the season. 



(Continued from Page 1) 

The building is located at the north 
end of Byrd Stadium and diagonally 
across from the old Rossbourg Build- 

Seating Capacity Large 

The building is 172 feet long, 136 
feet wide, and 40 feet high, with a 
seating capacity of 4,262 for basket- 
ball games and 6,000 for boxing 
matches or when it is used as an audi- 
torium. For ni^ht contests the latest 
in artificial lighting has been installed. 

The south side will be used for 
reserved seats and the north side 
given over to the students, faculty 
members and paying guests who wish 
to accompany them. 

Trophy Room Provided 

The building provides dressing 
rooms for all varsity athletic teams 
as well as accommodations for visiting 
teams to remain overnight. In the 
building will be located a gallery tro- 
phy room where the pictures of all 
Maryland's athletic teams will be 
placed with the many trophies won. 
In addition, offices for the director of 
athletics and his assistants, conference 
room, and an exercise room for the 
faculty will also be provided. 

This latest structure to be com- 
pleted on the campus at College Park, 
which is part of a large building pro- 
gram, was designed by Howard W. 
Cutler, a Washington architect. 

Alumni Day, June 4 

Plans have been made to hold the 
Commencement exercises for the entire 
University in the new building on June 
4. next. On the morning of the 
same day the Alumni Association will 
hold its annual meeting.

Yes — that, mayhap, is what the 
platform moralists call "spirit." 

I Note— The foregoing is an editorial which 
appeared in the Diamondback, the student 
weekly, in a special alumni issue, published 
on Home-coming Day. This issue was i>riutril 
ami presented to those alumni attending the 
Home-coming Supper Dance, with a full 
account of the football game and the happen- 
ings of the day. This feat, a remarkable 
achievement for the Diamondback stafT. which. 
with the editorial, is indicative of the con- 
fidence that the student-body has in the 
Alumni Association. This, it is believed, 
should be an incentive to every member of 
the association to resolve that in the New- 
Year he is going to do more toward the 
furtherance of the progress of the association 
and the University. Editor.]

feature of the program. Maryland fit- 
tingly won the encounter. 

Admiral Hart Speaks 
President Raymond A. Pearson pre- 
sided at the ceremonies. Rev. Ronald 
Taylor gave the invocation. Prof, 
('has. S. Richardson, a member of the 
faculty for 35 years, gave the opening 
address. Admiral Thomas G. Hart, 
U. S. N., spoke briefly of the enjoy- 
able visit he was having at the Uni- 
versity. John T. O'Neil, '30, former 
president of the student government, 
told the part that the students played 
in making the building a reality. Sen- 
ator Tydings' dedicatory address is 
printed elsewhere in this issue. Gov- 
ernor Albert C. Ritchie, in his brief, 
tactful, gracious, and eloquent response 
to the dedication, won the whole- 
hearted plaudits of the audience. 

Portrait Unveiled 

Following the Governor's response, 
an oil-painted portrait of him was un- 
veiled by the Misses Margaret Bur- 
dette and Marjorie Willoughby, upon 
which there was directed a spot-light 
while all other lights were turned 
out. Music for the occasion was fur- 
nished by the University's little sym-

For the opening occasion the front 
of the building was flooded with arc 
lights, giving a very impressive ap- 
pearance to the building. The various 
offices, smoking, rest and dressing 
rooms were open for inspection. The 
gallery trophy room, located on the 
second floor front, was decollated with 
pictures of many former athletic 
teams, trophies and banners won. It 
was a place of interest to many of the 
former students who returned for the 

Building A Realization 

The building is regarded as one of 
the most complete structures of its 
kind in the East. A description of the 
building will be found on the fifth page 
of this issue. One newspaper winter, 
in speaking about the shower facilities 
of the building, said, "Maryland must 
believe that cleanliness is next to God- 
liness by the number of showers lo- 
cated in the new athletic building."

new buildings started on the campus 
last spring. It is also the realization

Dedicatory CAddress 

\\ . Sen oor Mil i \rh li Tydings 
. NiJc-nf of the University of Maryland Alumni Association. 

THIS i.- .1 signal day in the history of the University ol Maryland, h culminates to aome extent 
,i comprehensive program of structural and development which began about ten 
years ago, and now adds a splendid building upon this campus which is worthy of tin- Stai 
university, m keeping with Maryland's dignity and fittingly marks the new place among similar 
universities of the country to which this institution has climbed. 

All of this is very heartening to those who have bent their efforts to have this vision translated into 
reality. It offers the faculty, the alumni, the student body, an J Maryland citizens the privilege of extend- 
ing our thanks to those whose enterprise and tenacity have made this dream ol >• true. 

In the group of those who have workeJ in season and out. unremittingly and often at great 
personal sacrifice, there stands out the name of one alumnus whose every endeavor lor the past 
two decades has been to make this place an educational scat such as Marylanders could view with 

s have seen this ma:-, spin the web ol his vision into the fabrii I ... 
ment. We are grateful to Curley Byrd. the inspiring leader and genius of the University ol 
Maryland 1 , and we are particularly grateful to him on this occasion when we have assembled 
to dedicate this splendid building. 

But in a peculiar sense we are met for another purpose to give to this splendid structure 
a name at once worthy of the traditions and heritages oi Maryland and one which will be inspir- 
ing to its student body while endowing its walls with an outstanding personality. So we scan 
the parade oi events to find such a name. We look through the fields ol larger happenings. - i 
national and international leadership and dominence tor one who has won such a place for him- 
self upon the thresholds of greatness that we may give this structure his name and honor our- 
selves and it in the christening. Our search is for one who must fulfill more than common- 
place requirements. We want to select a name that stands for vision, signifies accomplish- 
ment, portrays courage and radiates sincerity. The name of a man whose record lifts him far 
above the ranks of mediocrity, whose record and thought and action commands the respect and 
kindles the admiration of thoughtful citizens everywhere. We find that man in our own State in 
the being of our present governor, Albert C. Ritchie. During the long span of his stewardship 
of this State he presented first to us and later to the nation, a definite political creed and philoso- 
phy which had its roots in the soil of experience; a concept which was nurtured and visioned by 
common sense as applied to the needs of the present, buttressed by a rugged faith in American 
ideals, marked by a record of accomplishment, impregnated with sincerity and courage, and 
which has been brought to flower in a period of depression, equivocation, governmental decay 
and individual ruin to such an extent that the eyes of millions instinctively are turning toward 
him at this time. His is not a greatness achieved in a day but through the years. The respect accorded 
him at this time is not for a single act but for scores of them. The record which he has made is no 
phenomenon but the result of deep thinking, wide vision, courageous action and beneficient results. 

When, following the War, the soothsayers offered remedies of sophistry, unmindful of the 
plaudits of the hour, Governor Ritchie talked realities and common sense. When unwise and 
ill conceived innovations, brooking disire-s, were offered the State and the Nation he did not 
hesitate in season and out to stand by his creed and fight for its adoption. When paternalism 
spread its blanket over our entire country he was first in the field to fight it, to predict the dis- 
tress which has come in its wake and to arouse our people from a governmental lethargy; and 
in so doing has had placed in his hands the leadership of a large body of political thought 

In dedicating this building and giving to it the name of RITCHIE COLISEUM we name it for 
a man who scorned the hisses of the ignorant and was not flattered by the plaudits of admirers, 
who was content to shape his action by the imperishable truth within himself, now so much 
needed in our political life. We name it for one who, when so-called leaders were bending the sub- 
missive knee, fought nearly single handedly to preserve and conserve the most priceless boon of 
the centuries, the right of local self-government. We name it for one whose political philosophy 
has been so demonstrably fitting and sure that those who at first scoffed and scorned have returned 
to adopt and follow it. We name it for one who will ever live in the hearts of Marylanders 
as its greatest executive and administrator, a man to whom sincerity is innate, courage instinctive, 
vision natural and wisdom spontaneous. We name it for one behind whom the people of Mary- 
land are a significant unit, for one whose name is on the lips of people everywhere, one worthy of 
the highest honors mankind can bestow. We name it RITCHIE COLISEUM after Governor 
Albert C. Ritchie, our distinguished entry in the list, and worthy in every respect, to be the 
next President of the United States.

Seeing the Ritchie Coliseum 

TN THE University grounds, just opposite 

the Rossbourg Inn, one of the oldest and 

most historic buildings in Maryland, is located 

The Ritchie Coliseum, one of the most complete 
buildings of its kind in the country. 

Entering the Main Lobby, which faces the 
\Y Lshington Baltimore Boulevard 1 . we see 
through an archway the large playing floor. On 
each side ot this arch is a ticket booth, accom 
modating two salesmen. To the right is a small 
waiting room, and just beyond this the Athletic 
Office. To the left of the lobby is another office 
and a stairway which leads up to the large 
trophy room and lounge. The women's waiting 
room is directly at the head of the stairs, and a 
faculty smoking room is at the far end of the 
trophy room. 

Going on the main floor, because of the al- 
most perfect proportions of the building, one is 
not at first struck with the real size of the room. 
To truly appreciate its size one should walk to 
the top row of seats and look down on the play- 
ing floor and across to the other side of the 
building. Then one gets a true perspective. For 
basketball a crowd of 4,282 persons may be 
accommodated with reserved seats, and, for box- 
ing, or used as an auditorium with chairs on the 
floor, approximately six thousand persons may 
be seated. The playing floor allows a margin of 
16'/2 feet at each end and 5J4 feet at each side. 
Lighting, during the day, comes from the huge 
skylight. The lighting system for night was 
designed only after exhaustive tests by the uni- 
versity's electrical engineering department. 

The heating arrangements not only provide 
for heat but also for ventilation and for filtering 
the heated air. Automatic mechanical devices 
control the heat and also the outside ventilation. 

Large fans and air duct- insure an almosl pei 
feci supply ot purified air. For summer, i 
tern ot forced ventilation may be used to etxil 
the building. 

On the second floor, above the rear lobby, to 
the left of the stairway, is a large lounging and 
dormitory room, with showers and toilets on the 


Above this is a third floor with six emergency 
dormitory rooms. 

Beneath the stands are located individual 
rooms with showers and toilets for football, base- 
ball, lacrosse, track, basketball and boxing teams. 
There also is a special room for freshman teams, 
and supplies. Stairs on the right and left 
of the two lobbies lead to these rooms. To the 
left, from the main lobby one finds a room for 
a boxing ring, with a dressing room adjoining; 
next is the lacrosse room, then the track, the 
freshman team room, and visiting team quarters. 
A large storeroom also is on this side. 

On the other side we come to the football 
room and adjacent to this is a trainer's room for 
rubbing tables, baking lamps and all the para- 
phernalia that is necessary to keep men in good 
physical condition. The baseball and basketball 
room is located next to the trainer's quarters. 
A room for officials with private shower and 
toilet comes next. On this side also are a laun- 
dry, a large supply and equipment room, and 
the men's public smoking room. The laundry 
is equipped with washing, drying, and ironing 

Coming back to the main lobby, we leave 
with the thought that for utilitarian purposes 
and architectural attainment the building meets 
every requirement of a modern university.

Physical Recreation 
The construction of the new courts 
is one of the many steps the University 
is taking in providing physical recrea- 
tion for all students and in creating: 

Cities for training of teachers of 
physical education. For several years 
the University has been working along 
a well-defined plan for the develop- 
ment of its athletics, which provides 
not only teams for intercollegiate com- 
petition but also gives equal attention

for general physical recreation for all

Mackert. '21. In Charge 

An intramural sports athletic com- 
mittee has been organized much along 
the lines of the athletic board, which 
controls intercollegiate athletics, to 
control intramural athletics. Prof. C. 
L. Mackert. '21, former Maryland 
football star, is in charge of the gen- 
eral physical education work and is 
chairman of the intramural sports 
committee. Mackert also is to be ap- 
pointed to membership on the athletic- 
board and officially will begin his 
period of service on that board next 
fall, although he probably will sit in 
the various meetings of the board from 
now on. 

he University's intention not to 
add more new sports to the list of in- 
tercollegiate activities, but to use all 
• funds for the development 
of intramural competition. In fact, 
there has been some sentiment devel- 
oped toward the elimination of one or 
two sports now being fostered so that 
the funds being used for them may 
thrown into activities that should 
reach larger groups of students. In 
othe the intercollegiate and in- 

tramural phases are to l>e merged in a 
way that should build up both. 

In track, for instance, in which 
Maryland has not done very well in

Basket- Ball Team 

Now Going Strong 

The OKI Line basket-ball team, af- 
ter dropping two games by a total of 
three points, hit its stride and when 
this was written had won seven

Southern Conference realm ami put

Two sophs have broken into th< 
ular line-up. with Rufus Vincent at 
center and Kucky Buscher at guard. 
Three vets. Shorty Chalmers and Ed 
Ronkin. forwards, and Bozie Berger, 
guard, have been the others to start 
most of the tilts. Jack Norris. r.

as much as Vincent at center, and 
Charlie May. veteran guard, has got- 
ten into a majority of the battle-. 

Spencer Chase, another soph, 
Frenchy Cohen and Bob Snyder, the 
former a veteran and the latter 
another rookie, along with Bob Wil- 
son, whose trick arm is bothering him 
again, also have seen service. 

Wilbur Wright, a promising soph, 
has been off the squad on account of 
scholastic difficulties, but may get back. 

Since hitting their stride, the Old 
Liners have played a kind of basket- 
ball that would give any team in the 
country all that it is looking for. 

A record crowd of 5,000 saw the 
Navy contest which was the athletic 
feature of the dedication of Ritchie 
Coliseum. It was the largest crowd 
by a wide margin that ever witnessed 
a basket-ball game in the South At- 
lantic section. 

Maryland has 19 games in all on 
the schedule, the last contest before 
going to the Southern Conference tour- 
ney at Atlanta being with Hopkins at 
College Park, on February 24. 

is hoped to work out the same system 
with boxing, which also will be de- 
veloped on a much greater scale than 
either last year or this. 

Intercollegiate Competition 
The development of this system of 
intramural sports and general phys- 
ical education will in no way interfere 
with intercollegiate athletics, but actu- 
ally should supplement intercollegiate 
athletics by providing a larger reser- 
voir of material. Maryland will con- 
tinue its program of intercollegiate 
competition for football, lacrosse, bas- 
ket-ball, baseball, track, and boxing in 
much the same way it has bei

It is reported that the basket-ball 
game which Maryland won from Vir- 
ginia at Charlottesville, Jan. 21, was 
one of the most brilliant games e

A capacity crowd was present. Mary- 
land won on its greater accuracy 
from the foul line, as 12 field goals 
were scored by each team.

notion was made at the last 

annual meeting of the association — 
That Alumni Day be held on Saturday 
preceding Commencement— which as- 
sumed that Commencement would be

How Classes Have Responded To Roll Call For '31-'32 Dues 

Year o/ 

















The chart alongside of this communication shows to what degn ctive classes 

have paid their alumni dues. Elsewhere is published also the names of all individuals 
whose dues are paid. 

It is hoped all individuals, whose names are not published in this issue as having 
paid their dues, will at once send to the Alumi Treasurer. Dr. T. B. Symons, College 
Park. Md., this small but necessary contribution, without which the usefulness and the 
activities of the Alumni Association are seriously curtailed. 

The progress which the University of .Maryland has made during the past 10 years 
has been due, in large part, to a rebirth of spirit, resulting in a united and supporting 
alumni toward its various efforts. 

The officers of the Alumni Association wish to make this year a memorable one in 
the history of our Alma Mater. Alumni dues are the ammunition with which the B 
ciation must go into action. Without these small contributions a vast field of construc- 
tive endeavor is denied. There are many things of outstanding importance which cry 
out for attention and which could be remedied, were dues from the members of the a 
ciation in hand to further such projects. 

As president of your association, is it too much for me to ask that I have your imme- 
diate support; that you help me put our plans into operation through the medium of 
the payment of alumni dues? 

Quite often these matters are simply forgotten, though the spirit is willing. How- 
ever, the Alumni Association is just as potent as the acts of its members permit it to be. 
We need the dues of those members who have not paid. Kindly scan the list of those 
who have paid, and if your name is not there, please act NOW and send your check, 
thus accomplishing three major objectives. 

1st — Permitting your association to function efficiently in furthering the development 
and progress of the University of Maryland. 

2nd — To give your class a better standing in paid dues per class than it now enjoys. 

3rd — In this small m«aRnre, evidence your interest and real support toward the 
of making the University of Maryland an institution second to none in the country. 

, I feel I can count on all members who have not paid their annual dues to re- 

spond at this time. 

With best wishes to you and yours, I am

Responses To Roll Call 

This issue of the NEWS is being 
used in a concerted effort to procure 
more paid-up members of the associa- 
tion for this year. 

The following alphabetical list is of 
alumni who have made the usual $2.00 
contribution for the year 1931-32. 

Look over the list and if your name 
is there, the Alumni Board thanks you 
most sincerely; if not, will you please 
refrain from procrastinating longer 
and send your check in without delay. 
The number who have responded for 
the year 1931-32 is far behind the 
number who responded last year and 
to further the progress of the associ- 
ation it is necessary that we have 
your financial assistance as well as 
your enthusiasm.

Of National Rifle Honors

Maryland has the women's rifle 
champion of the United States in the 
person of Irene Knox, a sophomore in 
the College of Education. 

Shooting against the best marks- 
women of the country, the Maryland 
co-ed made the exceptional score of 
out of a possible 600 to take the 
national open championship. She also 
won the 50-foot title with a score of 
398 out of 400. 

This gave her a grand total of 997 
out of a possible 1,000, a score that is 
rarely matched by the leading col- 
legiate riflemen. 

Sergt. Earl Hendricks, coach of 
the Maryland markswomen, also be- 
lieves the Old Liners have a fine 
chance to win the National team title 
match which now is being shot. The

Outlook Is Bright 

For Spring Teams

Good Season Tennis Also 

Should Do Better. 

old Line squads now are looking 

to the Spring schedules and the track, 
baseball, and lacrosse aspirants have 
gone to work in earn 

The outlook in all three of these 

sports is encouraging. 'The track 

team should be better than last year; 

the baseball outlook is exceptionally 

bright, and the lacrosse twelve is 

hopeful of being in thi' thick of the 
tight for the honor of representing 
the United states at the Olympic 

games at Los Angeles this summer. 

Geary Eppley lost only a few track 
stars from last year and gol ii 
pretty good recruits from the 193] 

Burton Shipley, of the ball team, 
has most of his leading Varsity p 
ers of last spring and gol the best 
talent that has come up from a year- 
ling nine in many moons. 

Jack Faber has three jobs to fill 
on his lacrosse team, but has back 
his brother, Skip, and Ed Ronkin who 
were out with injuries last year. Joe 
Deckman's job at point will be hardest 
to fill. He was labeled the best de- 
fense man in the game last season. 

Tennis, which has not fared so well 
in recent seasons, should be on a bet- 
ter basis this year. A schedule is 
being arranged and courts, now lack- 
ing, will be provided. 


Boxers Do Well In Winning; 

One of Their Four .Matches 

Maryland's boxing team, in it- 
ond season of the sport, won one of its 
four matches and showed to good ad- 
vantage, in view of the time the pas- 
time has had to develop. 

The Old Liners defeated St. John's, 
but lost to V. M. I., Washington and 
Lee, and North Carolina State. 

However, Coach Bill Whipp's 
charges won a total of 10 out of 28 
bouts over the season. 

Bernard Keener, welterweight, the 
leading boxer on the team, entered 
the Southern Conference tourney, 
lost out in the first round. He

perfect score of 600. In fact, Miss 
Knox has only missed a perfect score 
for all matches of the season by two 
points. Josephine Knox, sister of 
Irene, followed a close second in all 
three stages of the match, with Betty 
Owen finishing in the high scores. 
Other girls to participate in the match 
were: Helen Bradley, Margaret Bur- 
dette. Frances McCubbin, Betty Mul- 
ligan, Ruth Di^'gs, and Lillian Drake. 

While the girls are being given a 
great deal of praise, the efficient 
coaching and diligent efforts of Sergt. 
Earl Hendrick, coach, must not be 
overlooked. For several seasons he 
has tutored the gun girls in a highly 
successful manner. 

This season's win is the third time 

that the co-ed team has won the title 

and the custody of the trophy given 

by the National Rifle Association. The 

first win was in Rii'ii.

For the second consecutive year. 

Louis "Boaey" Berger, a three-letter

honor in intercollegiate basket-ball. 

He was chosen a guard by the >>ffi-

"Berger is a remarkable all-round 
player who does everything well." 

Movietone news reels have been

Ball Team Loses 

Two Tilts In Dixie 

Maryland's baseball team pried open 
the spring sport lists by taking- two 
defeats in a trip into the South, North 
Carolina turning the trick, 4 to 0, and 
Duke by 5 to 3. A game listed with 
Virginia was prevented by rain. 

The Old Liners went South with 
little preparation as compared to the 
teams they met, weather and ground 
conditions at College Park being such, 
all during March, as to greatly retard 
Coach Shipley and his charges. 

Bozie Berger played a sensational 
game against Duke in the field and 
got two hits, while, it is said, four 
big-league scouts were on hand to 
watch him perform. 

Maryland has a good team and will 
prove it just as soon as it has a 
chance to get into real trim. 

Here is the way the team lined-up 
in its first two games: 

Wolf, second; Buscher, center; Ber- 
ger, third; Chalmers, short; Gorman, 
right; Chase, first; Cronin, left; Ster- 
ling and O'Hara, catchers; Davidson 
and Physioc, pitchers. 

Mclhvee, one of the leading 1931 
hurlers, and Ruble are the other pitch- 
ers, while Benner and Maxwell, out-

A one-mile relay race has been 
added to the usual 13 events in the

that are open to all. Other com. 
in this section are: 100, 220, and 440-

January, 1808, the State Legislature 
granted the charter.

Stickers. Trackmen, 
Subdue Old Rivals 

A lacrosse victory over St. John's. 
2; a track triumph over Johns 
Hopkins, 84 to 42, and an interscho- 
lastic meet in which 40 schools sent 
366 young athletes into action, made 
the annual field day at Maryland on 
May 7 one of the biggest and best 
occasions in the history of the Old 
Line institution. 

Maryland played fine lacrosse to 
upset the Johnnies, who had won the 
national championship three years in 
a row by making it their lone spring 
sport, and the track team did its b 
work of the campaign in disposing of 
its old rival by a more decisive mar- 
gin than anyone expected. 

A feature of the lacrosse play was 
the teamwork and fine balance shown 
by the twelve coached by Jack Faber, 
Ivan Marty, and Joe Deck man. 

A half-mile in 2 minutes and two- 
fifths of a second by Cornelius f'ronin, 
a sophomore, was the high light 
among Coach Geary I 
track charges. He might have beaten

Ball Team Is Good, 
Despite Hard Luck 

Although the Varsity ball team has 
a record of only six wins in its first 
11 games, the nine is one of the best 
in the history of the Old Line school 
and has played consistently. 

It was a bad start, due to poor 
weather that prevented the players 
from getting into condition, that made 
the going tough. After losing four 
straight, the team came back to cap- 
ture six out of the next seven, and the 
lone game dropped was to Duke's 
high-powered nine in 10 innings. 

Hard luck has camped on the trail 
of Coach Burton Shipley. He lost 
Ralph Sterling, regular catcher, with 
a broken ankle; Ralph Chase, first 
Backer, was out most of the time with 
a broken finger, and Bucky Buscher, 
capable center-fielder, was forced to 
quit and undergo an operation. 

Because of the wintry blasts, all of 
the three leading pitchers — Bill 
Mcllwee, Steve Physioc and I! ay 
Davidson — have suffered with sore 
arms, a factor that makes uncertain 
the chances in the remaining tilts.
